Ditch the front derailleur! We’ll bet you spend most of your time in your middle ring anyway. Ditching the front derailleur means: less handlebar clutter less drivetrain parts less maintenance Increased ring clearance over obstacles and drops lighter bike 1x10 and 1x11 systems make a ton of sense for those riding 27.5/650b and 29” wheel bikes. The NSB 1x Variable Tooth Chainrings uses a ‘Thin-Thick’ variable tooth thickness mated with a standard chainring tooth profile to help retain the chain on the front ring during all types of riding.

Kostya kills it on a BMX. He also tends to break his frames with surprising regularity. So over the winter he worked with Brian Kelly to make a custom one off BMX. In case you don’t know who Brian is, he’s the man who designed the Cove Shocker, STD, G-Spot and is now making custom steel frames. From Kostya: It started about 6 months ago, and was driven partly by curiosity, partly by financial need, and partly by a desire to try something new and challenging. At this particular point in time, I found myself inspecting my frames and finding hairline cracks along weld joints after, at most, six months of building them up fresh. This is entirely understandable,...
